Why Rabbit Control is Necessary
It’s estimated that wild rabbits cause well upwards of Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK every year. Indeed some estimates put the figure nearer to Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 100 million and at times there is no choice but to control them either through exclusion or extermination methods.
Rabbit populations can also fall victim to disease. The best known of these is myxomatosis, which is carried from rabbit to rabbit by fleas. In severe cases the rabbits end up being blind, lose weight and suffer a slow death, although there is evidence that populations are developing a level of resistance to this disease, which was introduced to the population by man in the 1950s.
Less well known is the virus VHD, which is transmitted by contact and can also be airborne. This causes blood to become visible from the rabbit’s orifices, and the creatures normally die within 48 hours. Due to the fact that the rabbit is a community animal, diseases can spread quickly and swift action can be necessary simply on animal welfare grounds.
